, the pentagon, leon panetta, the outgoing defense secretary, saying this is really going to effect our readiness, our ability to protect the country and prevent war and everything else. we're supposed to let that happen? >> yeah. well, i think the president while he doesn't want the domestic spending cuts to go through, he actually does want the military cuts to go through. this is why i think the republicans should call his bluff and play their card and say we're coming to you with responsible spending cuts but no more tax hikes. see how the president answers that. and if he doesn't, jon, i agree with charles krauthammer, let the sequester go through and the spending cuts go through because we have to begin somewhere. jon: and it becomes part of the obama legacy at that point. monica crowley, thank you. jenna: one question, one health question we're taking a look at today is can you actually seeville in the human body? -- evil in the human body? a german scientist says there's a part of the brain where evil lurks. why he says a simple brain scan can actually predict criminal behavior. we're goi
